for reportedly knowing for months. the cia director david petraeus was involved in an fbi investigation. holder did not tell the president. investigators are trying to pinpoint the cause of the deadly explosion in indianapolis. the ex-husband of the woman whose house is believed it be at the center of the blast says the furnace might be to blame. he says the daughter texted him saying the heat was out the family was spending the night at the hotel. they were not home when the explosion rocked the south side neighborhood killing two people and leaving dozens of others homeless. it could take weeks to find out what happened. a faulty furnace is not likely to blame. >> thousands of frustrated people in the new york area have been in the dark for two weeks now. the governor says he is not at all happy about it. he says he will launch an investigation into all of the power companies in the region which includes lipa, long island power authority. listen to this. >> they were not prepared. i think they were noncommunicative in their response. i think the noncommunicativeness actually exacerbated the s
uncovered by an fbi investigation into a series of e-mails sent by his biographer, paula broadwell, who was accused of sending harassing e-mails to another woman. that sparks an investigation that revealed her secret relationship with petraeus. but after looking at a recent speech she gave on the death of four americans in libya, people started wondering whether she and petraeus had shared any classified intel and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal.
